CD Projekt’s New Game Is Called Cyberpunk
No surprises there considering the very cyberpunk vibe you get from the artwork released yesterday but you’ll be mighty amazed when you hear where they got the concept from. CD Projekt’s new RPG is based on a pen-&-paper role-playing system called (you guessed it) Cyberpunk.
The game is being developed by a second team made up of Witcher vets and will put focus on allowing players to create their own characters to navigate a decadent futuristic world complete with super high-tech and the kind of moral ambiguity you’d expect from the people who made The Witcher 2. That’s all we’ve got for now but here’s the official description:
Players will experience the world through their own, unique characters chosen from different classes – be they blood-thirsty mercenaries or cunning hackers – that they will equip with vast selection of cybernetic implants and deadly weapons. As in the Witcher series, players will face morally ambiguous choices, their actions influencing events in the world at large and the fate of the individuals they encounter.
